[applause] >> well thank you mayor lee and let me just say as the federal transit administrator it's great to be in a federal transit city. as many people know a rail connection was promised to the people of union square and chinatown going on two decades. they made that promise because this quarter is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through president obama's lea

a newly passed legislation. not stopping president obama from weighing in. slamming the bill as they give workers the right to work less money. more on this, thank you for being with us. this goes bac back to the tax hy act. states have a right to do this, right? it seems really odd to me the president is getting involved at the state level like this. >> you're absolutely right. one thing that should be noted out this mission becomes the 24th right to work state, over the last decade right-to-work states have seen a net increase of 3.6 million jobs. union states have seen a net decrease of 1 million jobs. this is a good thing, the voters voted for this when they knocked down a proposition on the ballot in 2012 essentially trying to enshrine union rights with the state constitution. that is what they want to do. tracy: as a business while they come to a state that is union? why would i want to deal with those expenses on my balance sheet or my income? >> does not allow for you to run efficiently. we saw this with gm and recently we saw one thing you really should shock some people is

when president obama says things through tim geithner that he said about raising tax rate and spend additional money, which is crazy, it makes people more concerned that a big overall grand bargain can't be reached next year. >> eric: martin, do you think a grand bargain won't be reached? >> i think it will. talk about what is going on now here first. you know, the president won the election. he campaigned on the basis of higher rates for the taxpayer income earners. no surprise. the republicans are asking shocked that the president is taking a tough line. i think they expect him to roll over and play dead. that is not the way things work in this town. he won the election. and he told the american people we were going to raise the rates on the top income earners. now that is what he is trying to do. i think there is some give here. i don't think it has to go up to 39.6. right now it's 35. maybe it goes up a point or two. listen, republicans need time to sort through all of this. there will be a short-term agreement. there will be a down payment with some increased taxes. some increa

don't think republicans will be happy because you've been too nice to obama too. so new jersey is in trouble. and it needs the federal government to step in and you go to them and you say i need this amount of money. and there's some horse trading. but for the most part they're going to deliver at least 30 billion dollars to the state of new jersey, wouldn't you say? or maybe even a little more. >> i'm hopeful, hopeful. >> jon: at the same time they want to set up exchanges for health insurance. >> right. >> and you don't want to do that. >> right. >> i don't want to do it right now. >> jon: when they're doing it. >> well, no, no, no. because here's the issue, jon. and why i vetoed it. i'm asking a bunch of questions about how much it will cost and everything else. and they won't answer my questions, so i say to them listen, and what i said today is i'm to the going to do this now. the law permits you to make a decision later if you want to. >> i think you have a week. >> no, that is just the first step. but the law permits you to change back to a state exchange. i said if you will t
